Wadda Gurdwara Sahib Penang (WGSP), one of the first few gurdwaras to throw its support for the #MerdekaDayShiningTurban campaign, added colour to the Penang state parade.

The Penang Regitrar of Societies (ROS) invited Persatuaan Wadda Gurdwara Sahib Penang to join them in this year’s parade, a first for the gurdwara.

And, as part of the Merdeka Day Shining Turban campaign, they got all their members to wear the turban.

#MerdekaDayShiningTurban is campaign launched by Asian Sikh media portal Asia Samachar to get Sikhs to don the turban as Malaysia celebrate the independence day on 31 Aug.
